Relationship between religion and science

Relationship between religion and science
The relationship between religion and science has been a subject of study since Classical antiquity, addressed by philosophers, theologians, scientists, and others. Perspectives from different geographical regions, cultures and historical epochs are diverse, with some characterizing the relationship as one of conflict, others describing it as one of harmony, and others proposing little interaction. Science and religion generally pursue knowledge of the universe using different methodologies. Science acknowledges reason, empiricism, and evidence, while religions include revelation, faith and sacredness. Despite these differences, most scientific and technical innovations prior to the Scientific revolution were achieved by societies organized by religious traditions. Many theologians, philosophers and scientists in history have found no conflict between their faith and science. Perspectives[edit] Incompatibility[edit] Others such as Francis Collins, Kenneth R.

Sexual attraction This article is about sexual attraction among humans. For sexual attraction among other animals, see Animal sexual behaviour. Sexual attraction is attraction on the basis of sexual desire or the quality of arousing such interest.[1][2] Sexual attractiveness or sex appeal is an individual's ability to attract the sexual or erotic interest of another person, and is a factor in sexual selection or mate choice.

Which aspects of a person's sexuality attract another is influenced by cultural factors, and has varied over time, as well as personal factors. A person's physical appearance has a critical impact on their sexual attractiveness. Sexual attraction and high anxiety Enhancement

Nanotech Could Make Humans Immortal By 2040, Futurist Says - CIO Computerworld — In 30 or 40 years, we'll have microscopic machines traveling through our bodies, repairing damaged cells and organs, effectively wiping out diseases. The nanotechnology will also be used to back up our memories and personalities. In an interview with Computerworld , author and futurist Ray Kurzweil said that anyone alive come 2040 or 2050 could be close to immortal. That may sound like something out of a sci-fi movie, but Kurzweil, a member of the Inventor's Hall of Fame and a recipient of the National Medal of Technology, says that research well underway today is leading to a time when a combination of nanotechnology and biotechnology will wipe out cancer, Alzheimer's disease , obesity and diabetes . It'll also be a time when humans will augment their natural cognitive powers and add years to their lives, Kurzweil said. "It's radical life extension," Kurzweil said . Continue Reading

A Colossal Dilemma Within Science & Religion Christina Sarich, In5D GuestWaking Times “The Destiny of Man is to unite, not to divide. If you keep on dividing you end up as a collection of monkeys throwing nuts at each other out of separate trees.” ~ T.H. White Let me assure you – I do believe in God. Religion is nothing more than a human construct to try to explain the unexplainable. Our religions institutions are now (and have been) used by the crumbling powers-that-be to divide us. Then – there’s science. “Questioning is the most important aspect of science, and that is a direct threat to authority, and ironically scientists and the science institutions have become authorities and churches. This ‘scientific’ paradigm is not meant to heal humanity, it is meant to keep it sick. “Every year, nearly $100 billion is invested in biomedical research in the US, all of it aimed at teasing apart the invisible bits of the body. Darwinian, Newtonian science has kept us locked in one room, and religious wars have kept us locked in another.

Argument from religious experience The Argument from religious experience is an argument for the existence of God, as against materialism. Outline logical structure[edit] Its logical structure is essentially as follows: There are compelling reasons for believing that claims for having religious experiences point to and validate spiritual realities that exist in a way that transcends any material manifestations.According to Materialism, nothing exists in a way that transcends its material manifestations.According to Classical Theism in general, and to many theistic faiths, God endows Humans with the ability to have spiritual experiences and to perceive, albeit imperfectly, such spiritual realities. Points 2, 3 and 4 are relatively un-controversial, and the argument is formally valid, so discussion focuses on the premise (1). Suggested reason for accepting the premise[edit] Suggested reasons for disputing the premise[edit] Notes and references[edit] Further reading[edit]

The Revealer British Slang If you’re planning on visiting London in the future, you might just want to familiarise yourself with some British Slang expressions that are very commonly used by the British. They will be very useful particularly if you’re likely to be socialising with Londoners. 1. “Mind The Gap” This famous expression is always used on trains and the London Underground (Tube). 2. “Mate” is British Slang used to refer to men. 3. If something is “naff”, it is very uncool. 4. This British Slang word is not to be confused with the film of the same title where the main characters removed all their clothes for a striptease act. 5. The literal meaning is larva, but it is also another word for food. 6. “I love Pringle Crisps. 7. When the English don’t like something, but don’t want to be rude they will say: ” I’m afraid that going to nightclubs is not my cup of tea”. 8. This is another British slang word for the UK currency, the pound. 9. 10. This basically means ‘thank you’. Ciao for now. Shanthi

Stanford Scientists Observe Man Travel Out of His Body and Into Space – What He Saw Was Remarkable NASA’s Pioneer 10 spacecraft was launched into space in 1972. It was the the very first spacecraft to fly directly through the asteroid belt and make observations of the biggest planet in our solar system, Jupiter. It was also able to obtain closeup images of the planet, something that scientists had never had access to before. (1) Prior to the flyby of Jupiter by Pioneer 10, the CIA and NSA, in conjunction with Stanford University, were involved in what was called “Remote Viewing.” A gentlemen by the name of Ingo Swann was able to successfully describe and view a ring around Jupiter, a ring that scientists had no idea existed. The successful viewing of the ring by Ingo came after scientists observed him identify physical objects in hidden envelopes that were placed a few hundred kilometers away. “Successful replication of this type of remote viewing in independent laboratories has yielded considerable scientific evidence for the reality of the [remote viewing] phenomenon.

Freud's Part in Our Satanic Possession Called the "talking cure," psychoanalysis was a scam. As Michael Jones writes, for a fee, rich people received absolution for their guilty pleasures and permission to proceed. Jones believes psychoanalysis was based on the Illuminati initiatory ritual and is a form of mind control. "Both were based on having the patient or adept give in-depth, quasi-confessional "examinations of conscience" during which they told the Illuminist controller or psychotherapist details of their personal lives which could later be used against them. The bottom line is that psychiatrists, whether they know it or not, are part of this satanic secret society. Freud was a precursor of Alfred Kinsey, the pervert who killed himself trying to masturbate. Similarly Freud had an affair with his wife's sister, Minna Bernays, who got pregnant. Freud went through a period where he was enamored by the salutary properties of cocaine. Satanists promote sexual excess and deviance to enslave humanity. Related --
